Black with a very small head. Has a mid to full smoked aroma and is almost as pronounced in its flavour. Has a thin texture. gunnar (9697) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2012
Bottle from Beermerchants.com. Pours almost pitch black with no head at all. Aroma is light roasted malts, caramel, coffee and dark fruits. Taste is moderate roasted, sweetness like raisins and prunes, plum and dark red fruits, easy light roasty bitterness towards the end, very low carbonation suits this brew well
